BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — ClearPath, Inc., the leading provider of simplified immigration solutions, today announced it has appointed Tom Ridge, the former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Governor of Pennsylvania, to its Board of Advisors.
“I have long admired Governor Ridge and look forward to working with him again. His keen insight and subject matter expertise will be extremely beneficial as ClearPath grows,” said Michael J. Petrucelli, CEO, ClearPath.
Ridge is currently president and CEO of Ridge Global, an international security and risk management consultancy, headquartered in Washington, D.C.
